African Americans were poverty stricken and this was a global issue in the South, newly freed blacks had no economic opportunities and very little jobs being offered. Although reconstruction failed there was a success with the school systems, segregated yes, but there was still an attempt made to educate blacks. Also created a functioning, government in which blacks and whites could participate so African Americans were able to hold office.

In order for the New deal to be passed, it had to receive the votes of Southern democrats, which aim to keep the country segregated. The official ruling excluded agricultural and domestic laborers, which were primarily African American.

He believed that integration in itself would have little to no effect because although blacks and whites were coexisting, the individuals themselves ceased to see eye-to-eye and lacked mutual respect.

Many Southern states created laws to prevent blacks from voting and traveling. Jim Crow`s Laws were simply unjust. It is also important to point out that there was corruption during that time period that slowed down the positive growth of the society. MARK ZEES Thank you for the wonderful read.

The “Code of the Street,” materialized in American’s major metropolitan inner city communities’ predominately homogeneous African American neighborhoods because segments of this population felt disenfranchised from mainstream American due to lack of economic opportunities as well as the distrust between citizens in these communities toward law enforcement. The common belief in among a minority of the population in these neighborhoods is that the criminal justice system is bias toward poor minority groups and every person must fend for himself or herself. Therefore, urban communities have developed a set of socially acceptable norms within these distressed communities coined the “Code of the Street.” The evening news has not coined the term, but it is broadcasted almost every night on the evening news showing footage of gun violence that has plagued America’s inner
